Third Party Analytics Tools
Beyond the personally identifiable information you voluntarily provide to us, BC Storage utilizes analytics tools including third party technologies, such as Google Analytics, to collect non-personally identifiable information utilizing cookies.

Aggregated user data may be utilized to create remarketing/retargeting “lists,” or groups of users with similar onsite behaviors or demographics.
BC Storage also uses Google Display Network Impression Reporting and Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting and Interest-Based Advertising to display advertisements to users based on their inferred interests and demographics.

Self Storage Tenant Insurance Program
We understand that the personal property you store in your storage unit is valuable and important to you. However, our storage facility is not responsible for property stored at our facility. Some, but not all, homeowners’ and renters’ insurance policies cover property stored in self-storage facilities. You should contact your insurance agent to confirm whether your insurance policy will cover the property you store at our facility, and ask your agent about applicable policy deductibles and exclusions.
As a convenience, we make available to our tenants a Self Storage Tenant Insurance Program administered by Tenant One. The Self Storage Tenant Insurance Program is underwritten by one of the most reputable carriers in the marketplace. Note that the operator may receive remuneration for its administrative services, such as assisting in enrolling the tenant in the Program and collecting the monthly premium, and that affiliates of some owners of certain facilities enrolled in the Program may own an interest in the program administrator.
Again, you are not required to purchase insurance through the Tenant One.
We do not refund payment of rent or fees. For further information, please contact the Property Manager of the location where you are a customer.
